TUART TREES FORREST
Resort Swimming Pool & 1st Floor Apartments
My friend and i are looking to moving to Busselton. I'm from the Gold Coast, and she's from Albany, too very different places. Would i die of boredom in Busselton while she enjoys the wide open spaces??
Depends what you like doing.....
If you're into night clubbing & casinos, yes you will be bored.
If you're into swimming, surfing and many other outdoor sports, camping, wineries and the like you will have a ball.
Why not compromise and move a bit closer to Perth, say Mandurah or Rockingham. That way you are not too far from the action but also near wide open spaces. ....Hi Col :o)
Busselton is the biggest town of the south west....there is plenty to do, but if your used to city living then you may get a bit bored....Dunsborough is definitely where all the young people hang out and Busselton is only 20mins from there!!
If you like surfing then the south west is the place to be there are so many great surf spots and beaches.
Sometimes you get "climatised" you may even grow to like it....why not just give it a try and see how you go!!!
I grew up in Busso and and even though I have lived in different places I seem to keep coming home because I love it.
My husband has travelled the world as a diving instructor and thinks that Busselton is Awesome.
We have had a really bad run with "Nightlife" recently but things seem to have picked up. We have heaps of bands and concets lines up for the next few months.
Travel Tips for Busselton
Diving and whale watching
The Busselton Jetty is also described as a fantastic dive site.
The staff in the souvenir shop/ticket office on the pier can give you more detail about what activites you can do there.
There's also a wreck, the Swan, which can be dived.
We were also told that whale watching is an excellent activity to do in Busselton, with a very high sighting success rate. (Need to checkr which months of the year this activity is possible)
Here's a view looking down into the clear blue water under the jetty.
Country Life Farm
This is a little farm especially for kids to enjoy. They can hand feed animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, sheep, llama, alpacas, donkeys, ponies, cows or Clydesdale horses or just play in the giant bouncy castle, merry-go-round, inflatable slide or rowboats. There are tea / coffee and refreshments also available.
Location : Caves Road
Busselton and Dunsborough lie on the shores of Geographe Bay which is protected from most of the prevailing winds that hit the coastline. There is more than 30kms of white sandy beaches which is bordered by natural bush and forests.
A great area for fishing, water sports, diving and snorkelling and swimming. If you go around this region be sure to check out Simmo's Ice Creamery & Fun Park. Buy an ice cream for free entry and really, that is just about the only reason you would go there unless you had little ones, that ice cream is to die for. You will see flavours here you never imagined and feel like you had died and gone to heaven. Worth the detour.
(Commonage Road, Dunsborough).
